The numbers are having a party in the vegetable garden! Bouncy rhymes and bold, bright art make for a lively and delicious introduction to counting.

From School Library Journal:

reS-K-"On the castle side/of the garden green,/vegetables grow/for the king and queen" begins this rhyming counting book. Children will enjoy the smiley-faced, flesh-colored numbers that dance and cavort with the garden-inspired characters throughout the pages, and the silly verses that go with them, counting to 10 and back again. The computer-generated illustrations in an appealing and hip layout are engaging, with smiling faces for okra and broccoli alike. However, this book does not measure up to the classic status of Martin's titles written for the same audience, such as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (S & S, 1989) and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (Holt, 1983). The rhythm is occasionally forced, and there are some potentially confusing scenes. Young children will most likely expect the number identified on each page to match the number of objects described there, but this is seldom the case. For example, when "Two flips/into the air,/lands on the back/of a hungry hare," three hares appear in the illustration. Shortcomings notwithstanding, this picture book is quite enjoyable. The "Rock it, sock it,/number line!/numbers and veggies-/party time" refrain is catchy and could certainly be enjoyed in a program about numbers, gardens, or even soup.
